The holiday season always turns out to be so much busier than you anticipate, doesn’t it? Every year, you know you have a ton of shopping, baking, wrapping and decorating to do, and every year, you’re just not ready for it. Before you know it, you’re a week away from Christmas Eve and half of what you had intended to do isn’t done.
We’re having one of those years, so apologies for the lack of posting lately! We have a low(er)-fat blondie recipe coming up really soon (you know, for all you last-minute baked good gifters like us), but for now, we’re so excited to share the result of our first “official” project under our future bakery, Taylor Made Sweets and Treats.
Danielle is the president of NYU’s chapter of the National Student Speech Language Hearing Association (NSSLHA), and she organized their holiday banquet. The board wanted to host a charity basket raffle, with the proceeds going to the organization of the winner’s choice. We gladly volunteered to be a part of this wonderful event, and made one regular and one gluten free holiday-themed gift basket.
Each basket contained fresh baked chocolate chip cookies, chocolate lollipops shaped like stockings, chocolate covered marshmallows (like these ones, only in Christmas colors), and oatmeal raisin cookie mix-in-a-jar (a super easy and adorable DIY holiday gift, by the way!).
PS – Friends, if you want any of these things, tell us now!
